Yes it is! Go to the settings area, and click on languages. You can choose whichever language you would like to study that day.

I know it's an old conversation, but I have a question to add. Can you learn two languages from two different languages?

I mean that you select "I speak English" and study German, and then you select "I speak Spanish" and learn Italian. It doesn't seem impossible, but it's rather cumbersome to keep on changing back and forth the "I speak ... " setting. Any better way, except for two duolingo accounts?

It is possible, because your progress is not really lost. I tried to complete the English tree (Iknow Portuguese and English) to make Duolingo understand that I already know the two languages, but it didn't work. But I realized that when I changed back from Portuguese as a native language to English, my progress returned! So, it's a little boring to manage, but quite possible. I'm now learning Spanish from Portuguese (I think it's easier since these languages are similar) and Russian from English.

I have the same question, dude... I was somehow afraid to lose my progress in my other account (I have several languages there) that I decided to open a new for Català. Not a bad idea after all :)

Ha! Same here - catalán is only available if you speak Spanish. I know for a fact that you won't lose your progress when you change the "I speak ..." setting, but damn, is it annoying. Duolingo should really take in consideration bilingual (or delightfully mad) people. I am this close to starting a new account for Catalán only.

Is the Duolingo website built to allow learning multiple trees at once? Absolutely! You can toggle between languages at any time using the flag menu next to your avatar at the very top of your screen. Simply choose to "Add a new course" or simply click on the flag of a course you are already learning to switch languages.

Can an individual learn multiple languages at one time? Depends on the individual. Some people have no trouble with it. Some people find that learning multiple languages at the same time helps re-enforce ideas and concepts particularly in the same family. Others prefer to only learn multiple languages of completely unrelated sources so they don't confuse the rules and grammar. Some like to have a firm grasp on one language before picking up a second. And still others like to learn one language at a time. It entirely depends on the individual, there's no real wrong way to go about learning languages so long as you are happy and you feel you are actually learning. :)

Just to be sure not to loose my progress in the one language chosen, can I add other languages? my idea is to use duolingo to maintain all my languages/refresh previous learned languages

Absolutely, you can add as many courses you like and still maintain your progress for each. Just go up to your avatar at the top of your browser and hover over the national flag. Then select 'Add a new course'.

You can switch between courses at any time without losing any progress.

Hope this helps.

Great we can learn more languages, but do we have to learn all of the chosen languages every day in order not to lose streaks?
